The Gatlinburg SkyTrail is a scenic walkway, part of the SkyLift Park, that brings the experience of walking in the Smoky Mountains to everyone.
Phase 1 of the SkyTrail, featuring the elevated boardwalk, will open later this Fall. This quarter of a mile roundtrip walkway will boast unmatched views of the record-breaking Gatlinburg SkyBridge, and panoramic Smoky Mounain vistas. While exploring on the boardwalk, make sure to check out the interactive signage highlighting the SkyBridge and overall history of Gatlinburg, including the fires of 2016.
In Spring of 2021, phase 2 of the SkyTrail will be complete, featuring elevated viewing platforms, rope bridges, more walking paths, and of course- stunning mountain views. The trail will then be accessible from either direction, the east side's wooden boardwalk and the west side's natural walking path. The full length of the SkyTrail will be an enjoyable experience for adults and kids alike as an easy one-third mile walk.
Phase 1 of the SkyTrail, the Elevated Boardwalk, will open later this Fall and will be expanded over the winter and into the spring season to add more to your Smoky Mountain experience at the SkyLift Park.
